Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9825848A1] An apparatus for containing and dispensing toilet paper. The apparatus holds the toilet paper roll (12) in a stationary position as the loose paper end (28) is pulled from the inner core of the paper roll (12). A housing (10) for containing the paper roll (12) is attached to a base (16), and a cover (20) engaged with the housing (10) compresses the paper roll (12) against the base (16). This compression prevents sag of the layered toilet paper roll (12) as the void in the paper core becomes enlarged.
